Love Island is set to come back to our screens this summer. But we look back at some of the best contestants from 2015...
It was a long, hot summer – yup, we really did just quote that famous Caroline Flack line – and we watched on as a line-up of buff, bronzed singletons entered a villa in the Majorca sun, looking for love.
There were tears, tantrums, declarations of love, fall-outs, a meet-the-parents and even an engagement.
With the popular series going from strength-to-strength, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to look back on some of our favourite characters – and couples – from 2015, and to see what they’re up to now.
So, are any of them still together…?
Jonathan Clark and Hannah Elizabeth
It’s safe to say that this larger-than-life duo captured the hearts of audiences across the country.
Starting things off with a bang, JB and Hannah Elizabeth were the first couple to pair up on day one.
Although they stayed loyal to one another ’til the end (because, obvs, they made it to the final) their path to true love did NOT run smoothly.
They argued a lot, but also had the most heartwarming kiss-and-make-up conversations. And we’re still not over the time that Jon told her that she made him ‘feel like a rainbow’.
The young couple even got engaged on national television.
Sadly, their romance didn’t last outside of the villa, with the pair splitting up following an argument on holiday.
Now, Jon is starring in The Only Way Is Essex, and Hannah is still modeling and has a new man.
Jessica Hayes and Max Morley (the Love Island 2015 winners)
Jess Hayes was the underdog throughout the ITV2 series. She had quite a few rows, but became one of the most-loved girls in there, probably because she was so relatable. We’ve all been there, right?
She had rivalry with Naomi Ball, but Max eventually chose her and asked her to be his girlfriend. N’aw.
They ended up beating Hannah and Jon to the winning spot.
Max and Jess continued their romance for a while, but eventually split up.
It seems that Jessica is now dating someone else, whilst Max has taken part in other reality shows such as Ex On The Beach.
Joshua Ritchie on Love Island 2015
He failed to find true romance with Jess and Naomi in the LI villa, so ended up coupling-up with Lauren Richardson.
The definition of friendship goals, we loved to watch Lauren and Josh during the first series of the show – and so, it seems, did everyone else, as they made it to third place.
Jordan Ring (Hulk) and Zoe Brown
Come on. We ALL remember that ‘spider’ scene don’t we…?
There was a lot of drama when he decided to couple-up with newbie Daisy, but Jordan finally realised it was model Zoe that he wanted to be with.
They didn’t make it to the final, but did make it offish whilst in the villa.
The couple have broken up since the show ended, with Zoe telling her social media followers: ‘To all those who have asked Hulk and I are no longer together. Thanks so much for all your kind comments and messages throughout, wish him all the best #onwardsandupwards.’
Where is Omar Sultani now?
He didn’t have an easy time in the villa, and was eventually dumped. Sad times.
Both Omar and his confidence were two of our fave islanders at the time…
And he’s definitely become a fan, tweeting along to the more recent Love Island series.
What happened to Naomi Ball after Love Island?
As with most new islanders, Naomi was put on the island to cause dramz. And she sure delivered.
The blonde beauty coupled up with Josh Ritchie (stealing him from Jess, with explosive results), before going on to dump him for Max Morley (who was also linked to Jess).
Since leaving the show, she sparked rumours of a reconciliation with Josh after a cryptic Instagram picture, and also attended a premiere with Max (but just as friends).
Luis Morrison and Cally Jane Beech
A former professional footballer, Luis certainly got the attention of the ladies when he entered on day one.
Sadly, nothing was really working out for him… Until former flame Cally Jane Beech entered the villa.
The pair have been together ever since (aside from a short ‘split’, according to reports) and have also welcomed a baby girl.
